Montreal Teenager Dead After Being Found In Public Pool

A 13-year-old boy has died after being found unconscious in a public pool in Montreal's Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve borough early on the morning of July 17.

Jean-Pierre Brabant, a spokesperson for the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM), told MTL Blog that police received a 911 call around 4 a.m. on Saturday.

"Upon arrival, the SPVM noticed the young man in the pool and pulled him out of the water," said Officer Brabant, who confirmed that the pool is located at 4375, rue Ontario E.

The boy was in critical condition, said Brabant, and was transferred to the hospital where he died.

Officer Brabant said that, at the moment, police do not suspect the death was criminal in nature.

The file has been transferred to the Quebec Coroner's Office to shed light on the cause of the teenager's death.
